I found an interesting video from Ericson and MTS on installing 3G sites on the Russian tundra

March 28, 2012

I found a nice video from Ericsson on installing 3g sites on the Russian tundra. It’s quite amazing that Ericsson in cooperation with a large Russian operator called MTS was able to set up hundreds of 3g sites on the Russian tundra to give people in rural areas Internet and mobile broadband access. You can watch the video here.

The design faults of modern cellphones

February 28, 2012

One of the design faults of the modern smartphones is that they are becoming too large. An issue with this is that the phones are becoming too large to fit in a jeans pocket, If you once again start shrinking screens of smartphones they will fit regular pockets again. Another is that the screens are becoming too large to reach everywhere with a finger this makes it more difficult to navigate. The third is that mechanical buttons are being replaced by capacitive touch buttons. It’s easy to press these by mistake since it’s not clear where they end. Mechanical buttons can be used while wearing regular gloves while touch buttons can’t.

The race to build ever lighter phones has led to smartphones becoming more fragile because there’s not enough plastic to absorb shocks. Many modern phones lacks d-pads or trackballs which makes it easier to navigate between lines when you edit text they also some times allow for more precise navigation on the screen than moving your finger around. It’s not possible to use capacitive screen while wearing gloves and therefore it’s especially important to add a d-pad or trackball which can be used while wearing gloves. So to sum it up a practical smart phones has a screen of maximum 4inches, a sturdy chassis which has enough plastics to absorb shocks, has mechanical buttons and a d-pad or trackball for navigation while wearing gloves.

Xperia mini pro a good phone

January 27, 2012

I tried an Xperia Mini Pro today. It feels as the phone has a good build quality. The keyboard is nice to type on. The keys give a good distanct response when pressed. The directionaly keys make it easy to navigate within text which you have written. I also found the screen to be of great viewing quality despite it’s size. The quality of the digitizer was also good leading to a screen which responds quickly to finger presses.
